Directions: In making decisions about an important question, it is desirable to be able to distinguish between ‘strong’ arguments and ‘weak’ arguments. ‘Strong’ arguments are those which are both important and directly related to the question. ‘Weak’ arguments are those which are of minor importance and also may not be directly related to the question or may be related to a trivial aspect of the question.
The question below is followed by arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the arguments is/are ‘strong’ argument(s) and which is/are ‘weak’ argument(s) and mark your answer accordingly.
Instead of using solar energy, should clean coal be used as a solution to reduce carbon emission?
I. Yes, coal plays a vital role in electricity generation worldwide and the environmental harm can be minimised by adopting high efficiency low emission (HELE) technologies rather than depending on time-consuming solar technologies.
II. Yes, coal-fired plants produce 41% of global electricity and to reduce carbon emission substantially, atleast 50% of the existing plants have to incorporate HELE technologies so as to make less structural changes for shifting to solar electricity.
